The target here is to have a single product for both iOS (iPad) and Android (Google Books)!
Sorry for not highlighting that!
(iPad will use iBooks)
moved to InDesign EPUB forum.
Did you try a remote http connection instead of ftp?
that's actually what I did.. sorry for my lack of correct expression..
i used my ftp to upload the video to an http address so that the "href" or the "src" of the code points to "http://www.exctexct..." and it works for iBooks but not for Google Books and that's not good for our android customers
I thought that the problem could be the Epub3 Editor that changes the folders around in the epub3 structure but i have no way to actually prove that..
is there a way in the Adobe Indesign interface to set remote videos so i don't need to use that editor?
If yes how do i do that?
I tried also with a test file on play books and had the same results as you do. Looks like play books doesn't allow a remote video defined in the opf. Somehow it does not surprise me.
InDesign has no native support to add remote videos or change the markup of ePub the way you want it. You need to change it manually with an editor.
oh yeah i was hoping someone could confirm that
i can't believe android is unable to display our product even thou there r so many good android devices
it's a shame.. i hope they will update Google Play Books soon
either that either i hope someone else will make a decent epub3 reader
